Ddeokbokgi is a spicy rice cake dish that is widely popular in Korea with both the young and the old alike thanks to its addictive flavors and fun textures. Pieces of incredibly chewy rice cakes get covered in a spicy red sauce which is made up of gochujang and soy sauce in a rich broth base. The combination of sweetness and spiciness make this dish ideal for any late night munchies cravings or an after school/work snack. The simplicity of the recipe also means homemade versions are quite common as well as other numerous variations, including a non-spicy soy sauce option or adding a cheese topping. Ddeokbokgi’s versatile appeal is another reason for it being pretty much ubiquitous in the Korean food scene, with street food stalls, neighborhood diners, or marketplaces all putting their own special take on the dish. Having Ddeokbokgi as the appetizer offers an absolutely sumptuous start to the rest of the meal. It’s a tasty Korean cuisine classic that beautifully compliments much of the experience that follows.
